*QUADDIE:  A quaddie is betting on the winners of four nominated races, which are typically the last four races of Melbourne Cup Day. 


*MULTI-BET: Multi-bets can secure big winning returns on your wagers as you combine various bets into one. A multi-bet combines any number of bets (2 or more) into one single bet and dramatically increases the odds and potential winnings.
